Although it has attracted the attention of experts only in the last decade,
sports analytics has its roots since the existence of organized sports. Any
records of players or situations in the game that contribute to later decisionmaking
during the competition can be considered as some kind of analytics.
As an important part of these processes, scouting is at the core of coaching in
sport games at all levels of competition. Coaches and managers try to enable
improvements in competitive activity by exploring the key factors and mechanisms
on which success in competition depends, both at the individual level
as well as at the level of the entire team. The aim of this paper is to describe
how technological development and ultimately information technology have
influenced these processes, and specifically how modern tendencies affect
performance management in sports games. Primarily, the development of
data collection methods, from manual, through video, to the use of modern
digital technology has led to an "explosion" of the amount of data collected.
The huge amount of available data has resulted in the emergence of expert
data systems specific to each sport game, which provides analytical support
to coaches and managers in decision-making.
